Omega – classic update

Always nice to see an update managed in the most responsible manner – such as the 1969 – now 2014 Omega Speedmaster Mk11 – an iconic watch model if there ever was one.

Whilst the older model sported the calibre 861 the new Speedmaster 2014 Mk11 model uses the automatic coaxial 3330 movement with silicon balance spring and column-wheel chronograph.   Good to see the old “tonneau” case has been retained which was so much part of that “look” in those days.

One of the most recognized classic models the Speedmaster Mk11  is one model that I bought myself back in the early ’70’s and still one of my favorite models even today.   However with the introduction of the new update Mk11 tugs pretty hard at me to rush out and get one, such is the pull of this classic watch.

Absolutely no doubt about it when you have a winner such as this, then keeping the “look” is absolutely essential in my opinion and I’m sure this will be a much sought after classic Omega once again and not just from me  – IF I can afford it!
